. >>> in a stinging diplomatic defeat for the u.s. and israel, the united nations has voted overwhelmingly to recognize palestine as a nonmember observer state. in the west bank city of ramallah, hundreds celebrated the vote in the main square. the resolution still won't make palestine a nation, but it is a symbolic victory that palestinians home will strengthen their hand in future peace talks. israel strongly objected to the move, arguing that palestinians must first recognize israel's right to exist before gaining new rights at the u.n. yesterday u.s. ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, said the resolution would only delay the peace process. >> today's unfortunate and counterproductive resolution places further obstacles in the path to peace. today's vote should not be misconstrued by any as constituting eligibility for u.n. membership. it does not. this resolution does not establish that palestine is a state. >> a leading concern for israel is that the palestinians could now use the status to access the u.n.'s international criminal court, pressing it to investigate israel's practices
-scale mideast war. israel is targeting hamas sites in gaza with air strikes, while militants fire rockets across the border into southern israel. the tipping point for this new violence was israel's assassination of the top hamas military commander. brings us right to sara sidner. she's live for us in gaza city. sara, good morning. >> good morning. yes, we've been seeing air strikes again and again here in gaza city. we've seen more than a dozen air strikes since we've been here, which is a few hours. on the other side of the border, we've been seeing rockets coming in. we're talking about dozens of rockets since the targeted killing of ahmed al jabari, the head of hamas' military wing. now, what we have also seen in the streets are thousands upon thousands of people who participated in the funeral for al jabari. he's not only the head of the military, he was not only a man, a commander of the military, but a man who was one of the founders of hamas, a symbolic member of hamas. so many, many people out to commemorate his death. we saw shooting in the streets, as you see a lot of times during fun

by -- met by some tough language from the security council. not from the government, israel or anyone. it was the security council under the charter of the united nations that put that pressure. of course we know that this system worked extremely well. it was 100% performance as a matter of fact. it's not bad for any u.n. organization to get the task and then i think it's probably the only one which succeeded to make it 100% performance. so the -- that means that both destruction capabilities and the monetary capabilities were forcefully placed. so everything looked shiny and fine until the u.s. government -- it was in spring of 1997, through madeline albright made the statement at george mason university, well, it looks like sanctions are -- disarmament is going well. if it goes well we can still not lift the sanctions which was a condition under the security council. sanctions -- so we can't lift the sanctions until saddam hussein is removed. so that came my obsession with the regime change. that, of course, destroyed in the sense the institution and operations. so i think that expe
[ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup. >>> the situation is deteriorates around israel as a rocket from the gaza strip hit just outside of jerusalem today, another hit tel aviv. it's a major escalation of this week's attacks that killed 24 palestinians and 3 israelis. nbc news foreign correspondent ayman is gaza. it was thought both jerusalem and tel aviv were out of range for gaza rockets, so how does this change things? >> reporter: well, it definitely has a lot of significant implications on the ground for these developments. one, it really raises questions about the ongoing military operation. early on the israelis said that they had destroyed a significant portion of hamas's ability to fire long-range rockets and more importantly they said with the assassination or killing of the topham mass comma-- top hamas a fired rockets into israel hitting two of the most sensitive places of israel. essentially a game changer, and it's recharging the cal lags, if you will, for israeli officials who have deployed thousands of troops along the border. some anticipate this could
pleased to see prime minister netanyahu meet with our ambassador to israel to underscore how important the relationship is between the united states and israel, emphasizing the close security cooperation that we've had significantly and consistently, and we're going to work together to continue to make sure that iran is never allowed to obtain a nuclear weapon. that's going to be critical. >> real quickly, while we have you here, on a more personal note, it is an important day for your good friend gabby giffords, who along with her husband, is going to confront the man who shot her in court when he appears, that is, jared loughner appears for sentencing less than one hour from now. mark kelly preparing to address jared loughner on behalf of their family. this is according to politico. have you spoken to gabby giffords about her feelings about today? >> actually, i spoke with mark yesterday. i think today is going to be the first and last time that gabby will have an opportunity -- gabby and mark will have an opportunity to be in the same room as her attacker. it's an opportunity to clo
biased israel view. i can tell you what is going on. i love president assad. i stand with them. there has always been peace there. the women wear jeans, they'd drive, they vote. it is more of a democracy and a lot of ways and here. host: what do you think policy should be regarding syria? 5000 people killed in the uprising. caller: those rebels are not syrian. they were planted there. it is really funny. when obama put troops into israel, i think he did all of this for reelection. i am relieved mitt romney did not get elected even though i did not vote for either. i think obama might do the right thing and cut ties with israel. host: we will go to a report actually on syrian president assad. this in "usa today." he said "i am not a puppet." we have a few minutes left on the first segment of "the washington journal." we will go to pete in rhode island on the democrat line. caller: good morning. i would like to see him focus on the economy. host: specifically what part? caller: let's go with the fiscal cliff coming up. my thoughts were my belief is, and i hope somebody calls and corrects me
to supporters on capitol hill. she was joined by representative steve israel and congressman steny hoyer of maryland. >> it is going to be a good evening. our president is going to be our president. steve israel is assuring me we will pick up states in the house and yes, we think we're going to take back the house. i am so pleased to be year. -- to be here. we are fighting for the priorities our country knows are important. for the values that this country knows is critically important. for investing in education, in growing our jobs in america, in investing in protecting our environment and investing in the health care of our people. americans believe lyonesse priorities. i want to congratulate my friend steve israel for the extraordinary job he has done. i have gone through this country, i have been in almost 90 districts, 89 districts in this country. campaigning with extraordinary candidates. some incumbents khomeni challengers. they are extraordinary people who will do an excellent, outstanding job as a members of the congress. steve israel has set an objective. he has worked hard a
, and overcontrolled by a centralized state that is growing like cudzu on a north georgia highway. >> israel should learn how? >> it's not enough to say you can't shoot your way to power, you've got to open up a diplomatic path. and will they open up a diplo t diplomatic path? and the question for the hamas group is will they accept israel? we don't know that. i would simply say that's now one of the half dozen fault lines out there in the middle east. you've got syria, the iranian nuclear thing, the constitutional struggle with an egypt. you potentially have jordan getting in the mix. plus you've now got the oldest of the issues, the israel israeli/palestinian issue. this is facing barack obama at a time he wants to do more in asia, deal with the fiscal cliff. welcome to your second term. >> a lot to do. richard haa ss. >> how did jerry adams do it? how did the irish terrorists as they were called before the peace deal, how did they not only enforce the peace but then turn to their own bad elements and say, step out of line, and we're going to crush you. >> one was, they couldn't shoot their way
that is facing pressure from extremes. it was the extremists who were shooting the rockets over to israel. there were negotiations going on to get that stopped. >> are you saying hamas are moderates? >> compared to the salafists and al qaeda, yeah. they are a muslim brotherhood government which is why morsi had the leverage to negotiate the cease-fire. >> mika, a lot of interesting things, talking about foreign policy going on here at home, talking about who the next secretary of state may be, john mccain said, along with lindsey graham and several others, who said they were going to fight susan rice tooth and nail, that sort of changed over the weekend, didn't it? >> that appears to be changing just a tad bit. heilmann, you wrote about it. senator mccain is softening his attacks on u.n. ambassador susan rice after vowing to block her potential nomination as secretary of state. republicans claim ambassador rice deliberately misled the country in the aftermath of the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. but rice says that she's not to blame, arguing she relied on the ta
one nation that we should be nation-building with, and that's israel. because israel -- israel is -- that's god's chosen land. the jews are god's chosen people. host: ok, connie, let's give fred barnes a chance to comment. guest: well, i mean that was an issue between romney who was much more pro israel though publicly in particular. we'll see how that turns out. i personally don't begrudge him a vacation after the campaign, like to take one myself. but there was another part -- oh, yeah. what she said in the beginning about the republican party. is it really in deep trouble? i don't think so. obviously hispanics are a problem. younger senators and governors, they have 30 governors who are extremely important, 30 out of 50. like bob mcdonald in virginia and bobby jindal and scott walker in wisconsin and so on. republicans actually -- romney actually won i believe the middle class. if you have the middle class as people who make between $50,000 a year and $100,000 a year, romney won that group narrowly. the middle class is up for grabs but romney did well enough there but just n
.s. and israel strongly object to the move, arguing that palestinians must first recognize israel's right to exist before gaining new rights at the u.n. >>> all right. harold, let's do "the l.a. times." >> i enjoyed watching him do it. >> i'm getting nervous. "los angeles times." a new study finds ice sheet melting in greenland and an antarctica, more than 300 billion tons of glacial ice are lost each year. the earth's sea level has risen eight inches since pre-industrialization times. >> that was a good read. you were overemphasizing a tad bit, but i like it. i'll give you some lessons. >> my posture, do i do this? >> you just want to be centered. you want to be strength, warmth, confidence is what you want to exude. you want to cluster some words so you don't bore people. >> i thought i was talking too fast. >> in my next life, i'm going to be a consultant and teach people how to truly learn how to communicate on television. >> that is great. >> you think that's what i should do? >> yes. >> should i make that career change right now? >> what would the hours be like? >> the hours would b
for acknowledging that one of the things we were successful with, mr. israel m entioned that we did protect the benefits of social security, medicare, and medicaid. let me say that it is more than a priority, it is a value of ethics for the american people. hideout that whoever is at that table will be someone that fights to protect those bene fits. >> what did you expect to announce? >> when i do. you'll be among the first to know. >> i wanted to ask you along those lines, what kind of people are you looking for? is there an opportunity for anyone for the caucus -- >> for the past few months, the people have wondered why we are talking about the debt rather than jobs. we had the vote, we don't like the deal but it is a done deal. i have no intention for the next weeks and months to be talking about this committee. we had this responsibility, we will make our appointment and the nature will be self-evident. we can't turn ourselves into a place where we are just talking about the process of this. we have to be creating jobs. >> with the super committee, will you be taking people that are mor
capabilities to go up to 20%. israel and u.s. will build the case for military action, low level violence will continue against iran in various forms. and identify ran -- iran, can prepare an attack on the reactors considering potential success of the operation against the facility in syria. and this will all remove iran's constraints to acquire nuclear weapons. so we are either -- really concerned with the situation. let me add people of iran will continue to suffer under very tough sanctions. so there are two things which must change. diplomacy and the inspections. first diplomacy. five plus one has served the purpose of the it united front. five plus one mean to me united nations security council related global responsibility, europeans like to prefer three plus three which means the european union is the major player. i'm nervous about that, if you are europe you had better say three plus three otherwise you will not be served your dinner. five plus one, of course, it is important to keep on. i think u.s. should not do what it has done, hide inside this group. u.s. has now tried to ta
among your constituents? the republicans and romney tried to say that the president through israel under the bus. that was the argument and romney made it at the republican convention. >> i think the reason that the president got 70% of the jewish vote, is because womens health, civil liberties, that's a natural home, and we were able to make sure the lies and distortions that they tried to sew were not working. >> john boehner today in his speech, he had a conciliatory tone, and he said the american people expect us to find common ground and we're willing to accept some additional revenue via tax reform. what's going to happen? >> i was happy to see an olive branch. president obama had the kitchen sink thrown at him, but incite of that, voters voted to move forward, and we need to recognize that balanced approach the president talked about in the campaign is what we need to work together towards. >> you sound on mptimistic. >> i am. >> an exciting lame duck session. >> still ahead, a nor'easter is pounding the same areaing pounded by superstorm sandy. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go tim
not be jeopardized for our one true ally in the middle east, the state of israel. this included showing some support for what is become widely dome of the iron rocket defense system. but our focus in the middle east has certainly not stopped there. we've gone to great lengths in this congress to zero in on what i believe is the greatest threat we have to our own national security, and that is a nuclear armed iran. i've been pleased to team with representative ted deutch and senator kirk on a number of bills to stem this -- and confront this threat. our actions have ranged from strengthening sanctions on iran's energy sector to promoting human rights and democracy inside iran and much more. in fact, one of our most important accomplishments in this congress will have been a strong sanctions package which passed both houses this summer and which included these provisions that we authored. finally, i'd like to highlight the ongoing work to pass a bipartisan budget agreement. this is an initiative that i have been proud to advance, starting with the bipartisan letter urging the supercommittee to go big,
